LAFAYETTE, LA - As you may already know some of the news you see on television is actually produced by the companies that are part of the news story. All the major news networks CNN, MSNBC, and FOX were sponsored by BP during their coverage of the contamination of the Gulf. BP is of course a large company but smaller companies often cooperate by forming an association to promote their causes and handle public relations. One of those associations is the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association or LOGA. LOGA produces it’s own news and that news finds it’s way onto the major networks. In that way, LOGA is able to promote their industry and point of view.
